U2 - theology

I have been meaning for quite a while to compile some resources on theological responses to U2.


This is meant to be a first stage of a literature review and perhaps an article at a later date. So here we go. There are a number of different approaches that have been taken to this issue:

Biographical
Walk On: The Spiritual Journey of U2 by Steve Stockman (New edition, Relevant Books, 2005)




Sermons on U2 lyrics
Get Up Off Your Knees: Preaching the U2 Catalogue edited by Raewynne J Whitely & Beth Maynard
(Cowley Publications, 2003)


Theological reflections inspired by U2


Achtung Baby: Meditations on Love in the Shadow of the Fall by Stephen Catanzarite (Continuum, 2007)

Theological Readings of U2 
Religious Nuts and Political Fanatics: U2 in Theological Perspective by Robert Vagacs (Cascade Books, 2005)


One Step Closer: Why U2 Matters to Those Seeking God by Christian Scharen (Brazos Press, 2006)




We Get to Carry Each Other: The Gospel According to U2 by Greg Garrett (Westminster/John Knox Press, 2009)
